  1. Hi When I place PDF-Documents into Publisher (Windows-Version), it complains about missing fonts, although the fonts are embedded in the PDF. I don't want to edit the PDF, so I don't need the fonts to be installed on my system. Greetings max1josef
  2. Does anyone know if the fonts provided in Affinity Photo and other products grant the user commercial use?
  3. Hello. I used AD to draw and slice single glyphs for my new comic book font... regular is done, others (italic, bold, bold ilalic) are still in progress. ... and here is the sampler:
  4. Braille Institute of America from Los Angeles has published a free font. Atkinson supposed to be hyper legible for those with poor vision and to be unambiguous. You can get it here: https://brailleinstitute.org/freefont
  5. So I just purchased another copy of Designer for a new PC. Running win10 pro 64 bit. Updated to 1.9 and thought I was ready to go. I downloaded a copy of the Helvetica Neue family (11 styles - Helvetica Neue, and 2 of each of the others i.e. Helvetica Neue Light and Helvetica Neue Lt), activated it on my font manager (FontBase) and only 7 styles showed up, 6 were the same and one was different. So then I deleted the files from the manager (only ones I've added) and installed them directly. Same issue but different ones showed up. Read every forum on reddit and affinity that I could find about this and am still lost. Downloaded the file from three different places (cofonts, etc) all to the same issue. Deleted by hand from windows but only two showed up in the list. As soon as I deleted one, another style would show up. Only five will install at a time as windows says it has already been installed and asks if I want to replace with the other (light vs lt). I am at a loss. Checked other programs to see if it's Windows or Affinity and in paint I can see HelveticaNeue and HelveticaNeue BlackCondensed. In Affinity I see HelveticaNeue italic and 6 options for Bold. If I only install 2 to windows those show up in Affinity. The ones listed in windows are the ones that show in Affinity not the ones that show in Paint. Don't have access to my other pc to test on it right now. Looking like maybe a windows 10 issue? Anyone else come across this?
  6. Mac Big Sur and AD 1.8.6 update update yesterday. Nearly no issues; biggest thing I've noticed is that when I click the font dropdown, it no longer changes the font as I hover over a font. It used to change in a sort of preview-y manner which I loved. Now I have to click the font and commit the change to see the text in the new font.
  7. Hello, Are you planning on adding functionality for the new OpenType variable font technology in Designer, Photo and Publisher? Best, Bauke
  8. Hi there, I have to say I really appreciate your effort and I do like your apps. I still hassitate about switching from CS6, but there are people around who made the step and rely on your apps. I was asked for help by one of those people with a relatively simple document in Publisher. We sorted things out, but then I looked closely at an advert that came from exterlan studio as a usual PDF and I could not believe my eyes. The document had all fonts substituted! It did a relatively good job and the difference was not huge, but still - it was different. I tried to import the file in a different way, looked in the preferences for some kind of a switch, that would allow to leave the PDF as is and not parse it on import. NOTHING. So I tried the other two apps, hoping for a way of at least rasterizing the PDF in Photo. NOTHING. I have not found a way of including the external PDF in the publisher document so that it looks as intended. If that is correct (and it is not my mistake of not finding a way) then it is a BUG hidden behind the facade of a feature. The software is unusable for everyone who needs to include external PDFs in his documents, because there is no way of having all the fonts included in any external PDF. And there is no way of having all texts in the external PDFs outlined. It might work with 50 % of them, but the rest... Q1: Is there really no way of importing a PDF "AS IS" (without parsing is and thus substituting missing fonts and altering the look of the document)? Q2: Is there really no way of rasterizing a PDF "AS IS" (without parsing is and thus substituting missing fonts and altering the look of the document)? Suggestion: If the imported PDF had and option (at least in Photo and Publisher) to leave the PDF intact and parsing it only if the user needs it... that would solve the problem (it could be rasterized and imported as bitmap (only a suggestion). I understand, that designers who do not import PDFs from other designers do not encounter this problem, but for all the others (including me) it is rendering the apps unusable. If the above statements are true, PLEASE try to solve this very soon. Thanks. Marek
  9. The Publisher Workbook uses the Google font Muli for headings in the Alice Book project. The Muli font has since been renamed to Mulish on Google Fonts which means some pages of the workbook are incorrect. Fortunately, you can download the correct font, Mulish, from Google Fonts for use with the Alice Book Project. https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Mulish
  10. Really need some help & i know its something simple i am not doing or have turned off. I cant seem to insert art into my text - I havent had any issues for over a year with this so im guessing i have turned something off? Your help would be greatly appreciated
  11. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  12. I was trying to export a document using the font Montserrat and Open Sans (all downloaded from Google Fonts) in Affinty Designer, but it looks really strange. This is how it looks in the program: This is how it looks on PDF: Notice that the text in the yellow button next to the Direct Message icon became really different from the original text. And also the text close to the watch, below the main yellow text was white and became yellow too. Also, the padlock icon lost the FX when exported. Sorry for my bad english, it's not my primary language.
  13. Font not available Installed font is not available in Designer In Afinity's other apps, yes. In all other apps on the computer yes. Is this a feature or a bug? The help file on the topic is also not correct as I see it. Open the font management: Select Manage Fonts from the Document menu. In my version of Affinity Designer there is no "Document menu" Inappropriate wording maybe
  14. Hi, I am using the art text box in Affinity photo, and every now and then it will randomly fill in the background of the text box. Even if I delete the whole layer and make a new text box, it will add in the backfill. I have no idea what is triggering it or how to turn it off. The only way I’ve found around it yet is to start a new file all together, which, PAIN. I’ve also tried making sure my secondary color is blank. (See grey behind INKMAGINE in image below.) I feel like this is going to be a simple on/off something but i dunno what.
  15. Hello. When choosing a font from the font menu in Affinity Designer, I cannot change the font of the text by scrolling. So there is no font preview. Is this a mistake? I had no such issue before the last Big Sur update.
  16. Publisher is great. Started Freezing often. I lost much time in-between my frequent CTRL+S for frequent file saves/restart/freeze cycles. Found many other people posting about freeze and crash items. Noticed several that mentioned connections to fonts. Too many fonts installed, freeze during font selection, etc. ) So I looked for a font I had recently installed and was sprinkled throughout my text. PWSERIFSCRATCH. I removed this font from my text. And still crashes/freeze continued....Ooops, missed two spots. Once all instances of this font were removed from the text box I was working on that spread through 10 pages, the freezing stopped. All is good now. I still reflexively hit CTRL+S every few seconds, but so far it has been working fine. Some thoughts....On a good day, Publisher uses 2GB of memory. Not even Chrome uses this much memory. When it crashes, it seems to be over 2.6GB of memory. Perhaps the font control is working overtime and runs up the memory until my Win10 Microsoft Surface i7-7660 2.5GHz with 8.00GB Memory. Can Publisher be engineered to use less memory?
  17. Hey has anyone noticed any problems using text in AD? It is very slow for me. If I use a text frame, after less than a paragraph it starts to slow down -- I type in text and it takes a moment or two to show up on the screen. It gets slower as I integrate more text. Slightly worse with artistic text. I've tried changing the render settings (paths only, pixel, etc.) but no difference. I don't have many fonts installed, it's a fairly new OS install (Win 10) and I've only installed a few additional fonts. This is not much text (I realize more text belongs in Publisher) basically a few paragraphs that might appear on any flyer or poster. Strange: I have a dual-screen setup -- when I use the second screen for the dockers (I would like to have this setup) the problem is even worse. Any ideas are much appreciated!
  18. Hello! So, i was working on a new template for a CD cover, and as i was doing my thing, it crashed. I tried again, same results without knowing why. Then i discovered that writing the word "oeuvre" without the œ is fine, until i press spacebar to go to the next word, the autocorrect from Publisher that switches "oeuvre" into "œuvre" is causing the crash. I searched for similar problems, tried the cache clear, tried different fonts, same conclusion. BUT something is odd because when i'm trying to reproduce the crash, it doesn't come necessarily on the first try (i mean just writing the word oeuvre for example), i can write 5-6 times the word. FUN FACT : c/c the word with the œ included doesn't make the software crash. Sometimes it crashes right away, sometimes i have to write with the text tool, sometimes with the image box converted into a text box, sometimes i can do both. And the crash has two "endings", one is a clean crash, Publisher closes itself, the other Publisher freezes (blabla is not responding), and i have to close it manually in the tasks manager. I've been using Publisher since march 2020, never been bothered, even with the font i used to crashtest the problem, already used the word oeuvre for sure, so the question is : is it a bug from my side, or from the software side ? Sincerely, Azs.
  19. Hello I downloaded the Pecita font but none of it is joining up? I have tried the glyths but it don't seem to be working. Can anyone help?
  20. Hi, in Affinity Publisher, when I export the document to PDF, text is displaying as gibberish (see attached screenshot). The font is a standard Google font (Lato) , so there should be no licensing issues. What might be causing this, is there a way around it? Thanks!
  21. We open a lot of Illustrator files in Affinity Designer. Normally this works great. Now we have an Illustrator file where the text will not load into AD. There is not a single text block loaded in the document. Not even missing fonts. When we export to PDF from Illustrator and open the PDF in Edge or Adobe Reader the text is displayed perfectly. When importing that PDF into AD everything disappears again. When I use Ghostscript to convert the AI to PDF the PDF is also displayed ok in the browser or Adobe Reader. When opening in AD I get some missing fonts. When I replace them with another font the text loaded is gibberish. It seems like the wrong encoding or something. Also when copying the text from the pdf, the same thing occurs. issue.ai illustrator-exported.pdf ghostscript-converted.pdf
  22. When exporting a Publisher document to PDF it doesn't embed or display the font correctly. Please see attached screenshot. Font used in the document SF Mono ☞ https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ Publisher: 1.8.4 macOS: 10.15.17
  23. A big problem for me is the fact, that I cannot place PDFs in APub with embedded fonts that are not installed on my computer. Well, I can place them but they don’t look like they should, because the missing fonts were replaced! In a magazine I have to place a minimum of 70 ads that I get as PDFs from multiple customers. I only have to place them onto my pages within the editorial content. And they have to be ‚as they are‘ when it comes to printing. It’s not possible to tell all the customers: "Please give me all the fonts you have used"! So please make it possible to use PDFs the common way: Put a PDF on a layout as it is, whether the fonts used in it are installed or not. Kindest regards Udo
  24. So, this guy is a young twitch streamer I have played siege with for a while and he wanted a new logo for his channel. He really liked Shrouds S logo icon and wanted a similar effect with a G. I think i came pretty close with this iteration and as always enjoy your feedback. Red was the requested color and I solved it by using negative space with a red outline because the inverse "looks like a muppet" according to people around me. Twitch: gilleyg edit: I redrew the icon G 8 times in case anyone is curious. This is my 8th iteration.
  25. Hello everyone, I recently purchased some fonts and in one of the font families I have both Desktop Fonts and Web Fonts When I want to add both types of a single font it says that they are duplicates. 1) even though one extension is .ttf and the other .otf 2) even if I change the file name of one of the files (so that both the file name and the extension is different) I still get the same problem Is there a way to have both a Desktop and a Web version of the same font? I need the Web for designing websites (obviously ) but I would like to take advantage of the ligatures and other versions of some letters that the font designers have designed for print and avertising applications and I do need the Desktop .otf version as well. Thanks in advance! Best Regards Boyan
